A Hop and a Skip

Hey guys, welcome back to another one of my Screenshot topics!


A couple of days ago I decided to fly my first long haul flight. (Yes I’ve been an avid user of the app since 2016 and haven’t flown a long haul I’m aware). I flew the amazing 747-8F in the incredibly smooth CargoLux Livery from John F. Kennedy International to Luxembourg Airport. It was a feat for myself and my phone, not used to extended periods of use on an app (except for my TikTok addiction)

Anyway, enjoy the photos!

Overall

Overall I enjoyed the first longish flight that i’ve undertaken and would love to do it when I next have a large block of time.

Until the next time, safe flying!

It should be 8F instead of 800F ;)
